Yeah, they gave up some talent, but when you look at what it cost them to acquire that talent and how little experience the talent had, this is crazy.
To clarify, the better tally should be
O'Brien + 2nd + Penner for
1st (MacMillan), 2nd (Tangradi), 1,2,3 (Edm)

People keep forgetting that we gave O'Brien and a 2nd for the first, meaning O'Brien was worth roughly a 2nd.
